Arthur Creek rises a mile west of the Brewster county line in northeastern Presidio County (at 30°17' N, 103°50' W) and runs southwest for twenty miles to its mouth on Alamito Creek, a mile south of San Esteban Dam (at 30°07' N, 104°02' W). Its course crosses desert mountain terrain, canyonland of volcanic rock, alluvial sands and gravel, and rough stony ground where scrub brush, sparse grasses, and desert shrubs grow.
